Eric Reid’s turn for a revenge game

The Niners Nation prediction contest is back for Week 8 of NFL action. Like always, we’ll have six games this week. We’re changing it up this week. We’ll have the Sunday Night Football game. Like last week, I’m skipping the Monday Night game. It involves the Dolphins, and nobody should ever pick the Miami Dolphins to win a game. This isn’t a great slate for games.

You predict the score of the games, and...

WR Sanders happy with trade: 'Needed a change'

About three hours after his trade from Denver, Emmanuel Sanders was on his way to San Francisco, ready to take a crash course in coach Kyle Shanahan's offense.

Jimmy Garoppolo’s slides were refreshing and scary.

With that knee of his, I was holding my breath.

The big star of the San Francisco 49ers game against Washington Monday was FedEx Field. The elements were a huge factor in the messiness of the game, and both quarterbacks couldn’t get a proper footing, much less a decent grip on the ball to throw with some control.

So there were times to run, and Jimmy Garoppolo scrambled:

49ers injury updates: Shanahan not as hopeful for Taylor and Hurd to return

Staley has a chance to play Sunday

Kyle Shanahan met with the media Wednesday afternoon before practice to provide a couple of injury updates for the 49ers. Shanahan said that OT Joe Staley would attempt to do some individual drills this afternoon. With a short turnaround, I’d play it safe if I’m the Niners. Bring Staley back next Thursday if there’s any indication that he’s not 110% healthy. Shanahan said that there’s...

Emmanuel Sanders to wear No. 17; Jalen Hurd switches to No. 14

The rookie will have a new number once he returns from the IR

I was wondering what number newly acquired receiver Emmanuel Sanders would wear for the San Francisco 49ers. The majority of numbers that were available were taken. Sanders couldn’t wear No. 10 because it’s occupied by another player that plays a slightly more important position. The 49ers announced on Wednesday that Sanders will wear No. 17, previously worn by...

Kyler Murray, Nick Bosa heavy favorites for Rookie of the Year honors

The NFC West has seen some major infusion of young talent thus far this season. In fact, this is the only division in the NFL void of a losing team heading into Week 8. The obvious talk out west has been the undefeated San Francisco 49ers, who have suddenly morphed into a legit Super Bowl contender. However, rookie No. 1 pick Kyler Murray has his Cardinals in the midst of a surprising three-game winning streak. In what can’t be considered too much of a surprise, Murray is now the heavy...

Revisiting the 49ers 2020 & Beyond Salary Cap Situation after the Sanders trade

Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports

Taking a look at the salary cap and making a few projections

Recently I went deeper into the San Francisco 49ers 2020 salary cap and beyond, and with the trade for Emmanuel Sanders, now is a great time to dive back in.

For the next ten weeks/games, Sanders will earn $5,970,588.

At this moment, I have the 49ers at $12,723,862 under the 2019 salary cap, but again like I mentioned in my previous article, the 49ers will have to pay back roster bonuses to...

It’s a gamble, but an OK trade

If the 49ers are going to get a wide receiver, Sanders was it.

Today you’re going to read a lot and hear a lot about the San Francisco 49ers trading for Emmanuel Sanders. I’ll begin by saying the 49ers didn’t need a wide receiver. So don’t bother reminding me about that.

The more I think about it, it might be a gamble, but it’s an OK trade. In that above article I highlighted specifically why I didn’t think the 49ers needed a wide...

NFL Power Rankings: Niners fall one spot

The Saints jumped San Francisco

It feels like a month ago when the San Francisco 49ers beat Washington. It’s been three days. A 9-0 victory didn’t impress the media, despite the conditions. That caused the Niners to drop one spot in the NFL’s latest Power Rankings. Here’s what they had to say about San Francisco:

Previous rank: No. 2

It will be one of the most indelible images of this 49ers season: Nick Bosa, clinching...

Report: Teams have inquired about Nick Mullens

They needs all the quarterbacks

The San Francisco 49ers are done trading for players, but they might have a chance to trade some—or at least one—of their own. Our old friend James Brady has heard that some teams have made phone calls to the 49ers on Nick Mullens.

James points out that the 49ers aren’t exactly shopping Mullens around, but nothing is stopping them from picking up the phone and listening to offers. It sounds like just that:...

The only risk for the 49ers would have been to sit idle at the trade deadline

Going through the risks and rewards of acquiring Emmanuel Sanders. Also, explaining his game in five routes.

The game of football is full of risks. Some of the best teams in the NFL take these risks year after year. Look at the San Francisco 49ers divisional foe in the Los Angeles Rams. They’ve arguably been the most aggressive team in the NFL over the past couple of seasons. The Rams traded for Jalen Ramsey a week ago, but they’ve made over five...

Not everyone was

Thank you, John Lynch. I was dreading writing the winners and losers article about Sunday’s game. Here, I will quick now. Winners: The undefeated team that escaped with no injuries. Losers: The same franchise that has been losing for over a decade. Now that we have that out of the way let’s talk more about Emmanuel Sanders. Here are the winners and losers from a San Francisco 49ers point of view.

Golden Nuggets: 49ers make splash at WR

Wednesday, October 23rd, 2019 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of San Francisco 49ers links from the Interent

The 49ers slipped and splashed on Sunday to beat Washington 9-0 on a rain-soaked field. But on Tuesday, they made a much bigger splash than any on Sunday by trading for Denver Broncos wideout Emmanuel Sanders. The team gave up a 2020 3rd and 4th round pick in exchange for Sanders and a 2020 5th round pick. Sanders instantly...

The 49ers were interested in Mohamed Sanu as well

Some key wide receiver dominoes fell Tuesday, and the 49ers were involved in both. Prior to acquiring Emmanuel Sanders from the Broncos, the 49ers were “heavily” in on Mohamed Sanu, according to Matt Barrows of The Athletic (subscription required). The Patriots ended up outbidding the 49ers for the Falcon wideout, sending a second-round pick to Atlanta. San Francisco already unloaded its 2020 second-rounder, sending it to Kansas City for Dee Ford in March. Sanu is 30 and signed through 2020;...

There’s only one “Master vs. Pupil” game and Patriots-Jets wasn’t it

It’s time to not ignore that elephant in the room.

If you managed to stick around the Monday Night Football disaster the entire game, you might have lost count of Sam Darnold’s interceptions. It’s ok. I’m sure you aren’t alone. You also may have heard the commentating crew put together another gem of a night with Booger McFarland calling Patriots-Jets, or Tom Brady vs. Sam Darnold, “the master vs. the pupil.”

Um. No.
